A while back my dear bloggy friend Lara sent me a quilt top, two matching fabrics and another matching charm pack. She was having a clear out and getting rid of things that made her feel guilty. Oh you know the feeling do you? Yes, me too. I told her I would finish the quilt and donate it to a charity. Well surprise, surprise Lara, it's finally done!!!
And it's so cute too! I love the Moda Odyssey range of fabrics. I think a little boy in Christchurch is going to love snuggling up in his new quilt, don't you?
It's not that big, but big enough for a little lad and his teddy. I'm sure it would look wonderful on a wooden cot too.
I went for wavy quilting lines as I thought it looked suitably sea-like for the little fishes. A bit of a breakaway from my usual stippling. Way quicker too, especially as I didn't measure the distance between each line. It's fairly even I think.
A little label was made on my fab little machine...
and then stitched onto the dotty quilt back. I really love the backing fabric. It's just a cheapy from Spotlight but it goes well. And next week when I meet up with Cat I will pass it onto her, to accompany her to Christchurch.
Thank you Lara for helping me make this quilt for someone special. xxx
